Oh my goodness to be in the vatican and no queue it was a very smooth tour with an excellent guide Maurice especially the breathtaking cistine chapel and basilica but a lot of the amazing art and sculpture were explained and to see pope John Paul II tomb was very touching
I would just like to say be aware the instructions on were to meet were very clear and it states bottom of steps opposite the museum which are at the back of the vatican so follow the wall around the back not the front steps, just in case that may not be clear i would highly recommend this tour
When we saw the line ups waiting to get into the Vatican we were so happy to skip the line. Our guide Ella was wonderful and extremely knowledgable.
The Highlight of our trip!!!
Our Guide Sabrina was a wealth of information!
This is a MUST DO!!
Excellent, our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. It was great to bypass the lines. I would really recommend you get to learn alot.
Our guide gave us a tremendous amount of information that added immensely to our understanding and enjoyment. Strongly recommend this tour.
The lines were long and the tour was necessary to avoid a long wait in the hot sun. The guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic
Great tour guide who gave us insight into the sights we saw within the vatican. Skipping the line probally saved us 3-4 hours but having someone talking about what we were seeing was worth the price of the tour.
Excellent tour. Our guide was very informative and very easy to understand and listen to. It was brilliant to have the radio ear phones. I would highly recommend this tour as the benefit of 'skipping the line' and the knowledge of the guide made it a memorable experience.

Tour was very organized and tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative
Excellent tour with a fantastic guide. It is amazing what we saw in 3 hours. There is no other way to see the Vatican.
A great way to see the Vatican highlights I couldn't imagine waiting in all the long lines in the heat. Oscar, our guide, was terrific. Only negatives none of which is the tour's or Oscar's fault: too many tourists as though we didn't add to the problem!, too much to see in the Museums and Cathedral now we know for sure where all the money goes!, and too hot Rome in August what did we expect?. The Sistine Chapel was indeed a highlight.
I can thoroughly recommend our 3 hour tour. The guide gave just the right level of info. Very informative, but not intense. There were no hassles and it really was amazing to walk past all the long queues with such ease.
Our guide was very informative! Only wished we had more time to spend in the Vatican. Definitely worthwhile. You might want to add another hour to the tour in order that guests can have more of an opportunity to learn and see more of the Vatican. Some friends didn't do this tour and spent 3 hours waiting to get inside. When the tour is over you have time to explore St. Peter's on your own and climb or take the elevator up to the copula.
Great tour, got us through the crowds. Guide very knowledgeable!
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We appreciated skipping the line and would recommend taking such a tour to our friends.
We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. We also saw everything that we wanted to see--and did get to skip the lines which was well worth it.
